Tokyo now has a Kirby Café Petit, a new Nintendo character store with a takeaway shop serving Kirby-themed pastries and sweets. You'll find it along Tokyo Station's Character Street, which is home to all your pop culture favourites like Pokémon, Hello Kitty and, of course, the loveable pink Kirby.
Kirby Café Petit has a pared down version of the menu found at the Kirby Café in Tokyo Skytree and focuses on desserts. There are nine sweet treats available, with some of the standouts being the pink Kirby car cake (¥1,188) and the Kirby strawberry pudding (¥950) with the character’s face on it.
There’s also a tiramisu (¥1,566) in an exclusive mug, three kinds of tarts (¥842 each) in chocolate, banana and mango flavours, and a cartoon-like pink strawberry shortcake (¥788). Look out for the easy-to-eat star rod apple pie (¥734), a star-shaped dessert filled with baked apple and custard cream on a popsicle stick.
Along with all the food, the café also has a dedicated souvenir section selling limited-edition merchandise like plushies and snacks that you won't find anywhere else.
